Self-serving post… to any law students on law review

Hello — on the off chance that there are any law student readers of this blog, I have a property theory / inequality article in the submissions process with law reviews and I would love to get a read.  My fingers are crossed for an acceptance.  =)  It is a follow up to an earlier property theory / race / inequality article.

Request for Proposals: “Understanding Socioeconomic Status and Online Privacy and Security”

Request for Proposals: “Understanding Socioeconomic Status and Online Privacy and Security” from the Digital Trust Foundation.  Overview below:

The Digital Trust Foundation has found that research and analysis of the online privacy experiences of low-SES populations are underrepresented in the public discourse, media coverage, and academic literature. To address this gap, the Foundation intends to fund (1) research into the privacy and security experience of low-SES people and (2) online privacy and security-related direct services and information dissemination to low-SES people. We anticipate entertaining proposals for projects of various sizes, with budgets in the range of $50,000 and $300,000.Exceptional projects with budgets outside this range may be considered.

New Infographic: “The Rise of Suburban Poverty.”  (Note: I get many requests to post infographics and this one I am posting mainly because the host page, , does seem to have interesting links.  But I am nervous about such infographic post requests — I suspect many are either class assignments which is okay, or efforts to drive up page views but not for their own sake — and not going to post many.)
